Is this a computer you built from parts or is it a Dell, HP, etc.
If you know the mobo manufacturer you will be able to find the drivers you need at their site.
Just do a search on the model number for drivers.
Post again if you're still having problems.

Hi dogs 2222,

Usually to find the serial number for most manufactured computers or laptops like Dell, HP, ACER, etc. They usually put a sticker at the back of the computer with that information, don't look at the back of the monitor it should be at the back of the computer tower for desktops and for laptops its going to be on the bottom on of the laptop PC. Other times it will be on the side or the front of the PC itself so look carefully for a sticker.

And also for different companies, they have different names for the serial number. Example for Dell PC's it's called SERVICE TAG or the EXPRESS SERVICE CODE, sticker. Check with the manual of your computer or otherwise contact the Technical Support for your PC.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
